Donovan Does a Podcast

Media & Entertainment Podcasts

Donovan is a strange breed, born and raised in the deep South, he falls on the left side of the political spectrum. Couple that with no interest in the standard southern faire of fishing, hunting, and sports, but with a passion for all things tech, he’s an anomaly in a sea of cookie cutter “Southernism”. He’s not a believer, always a skeptic, and feels there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about things. He’s opinionated, and at times somewhat brash. That’s what you’ll get when you listen to this podcast, where he shares personal stories, and news of the day he finds interesting, or maybe a specific topic he feels needs further discussion. No subject matter is off limits! You’ve been warned. ;)
